Why I’m a fan of the Colorado Rapids

I'm was one of those people. One of those people who just came for the fireworks. My parents took me to a July 4th Rapids game back in 1999ish because my brother was a fan and they were supposed to have a good fireworks show. I was nine and didn't like watching any sports, but played soccer like every other nine year old. The fireworks were cool and all, but the game hooked me. Then Carlos Valderrama scored an amazing goal that made the SportsCenter Top 10 and there was no hope for me.
